Ἀπὸ τῆς Γενέσεως.
Ἀριθμῶν καὶ Δευτερονομίου.
Ἀπὸ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ.
Ἀπὸ τῶν Εὐαγγελίων.
What I'm wondering about is that some sections have an Ἀπὸ τῶν Εὐαγγελίων section and some don't.
Having the section are: α, β, γ, δ, ε, ι, ν, τ
Missing the gospel sections are: ζ, η, θ, κ, μ, ξ, ο, π, ρ, ς, υ, φ, χ, ψ, ω
Ι think that reading Greek explanations of place names would be a good exercise in cartography and getting to know the layout of 1st century Palestine. ποῦ κεῖται ἡ πόλις..... What would really be cool, is a restored Madaba map http://www.christusrex.org/www1/ofm/mad/. This would be a real nice addition to a beginning grammar.
Here are some sample entries:
Eusebius does not list even Caesarea (although he talks about Διοκαισαρεῖα) , so I'm wondering what I don't understand about his work. Perhaps someone could shed some light on it for me. Is he sticking to places only mentioned in the OT and apocrhypha? He does mention Δεκάπολις. Someone suggested it was written when Christianity was still illegal. And that some of the places have been added or moved due to later editors.Γολγοθά (Matth 27, 33). «κρανίου τόπος», ἔνθα ὁ Χριστὸς ἐσταυρώθη.
